Morning time plans

Second of a few catch up posts

 Every where I look I see twins.
Hope seems to think that babies come in twos.
 There are lots of nappies changed everyday in our house.  I think she changes almost as many as I do.  Now that she is a big girl and doesn't wear nappies in the day any more, she is more inclined to change baby after baby after baby.
She'd change these two if she had the chance. She is crafty though and tries to mother them in other ways.  Hosea is wise and moves fast, Phinn is not always as lucky and can find himself washed down with water before he can blink.  Both boys were sporting nifty hairstyles the other morning after a "bath" by Hope from a bottle of water.  They were not amused!

The first of a few catch up posts

It seems if we do anything other than this, then nothing else gets done.  Especially not in the blog world.  And that is ok, but I am sure that if I don't write it down I will never be able to remember any of it.

We went to the zoo, and remembered to play on the metal animal structures outside before going in.  The girls normally want to on the way home but there is never enough energy left in my reserves to do this.
The boys enjoyed the grass while Heidi and Hope followed Shelldon on his walk learning all about Tortoises and how they are different from turtles.
Hosea met with a bee, picked it up and bit it.  The pic is blurry but you can see how swollen he got.  It was all a little stressful seeing a bee in his mouth, fishing it out and then I smashed it in the deck with the phone I was holding at the time.  Turns out the whole thing was recorded on my friends answer phone as I has placed a call right before he bit it!  He was checked over and declared fine. 
It has been so hot that the pool was up for a couple of days.  We quickly ditched the small inflatable slide for the plastic slide, way more fun!
Everyone enjoyed it, and the washing line strung up with sheets gave just the right amount of shade.

We've been busy and well, but trying to find time to blog is hard.  I guess that means we are living and not just observing.
Will TRY to get something up over the weekend.

One of those times.....

One of those times you know you shouldn't, you know that in 6 months time you'll regret showing them, but you really had to get supper made, so you did!
Introducing the boys to the Tupperware cupboard!

We got together with the other families that are in our Co-op last thursday, and one of the other Mums did a bit of a getting to know you quiz with each of the kids starting this Autumn. Heidi's is super cute so I thought I'd record it here and then when I loose the bit of paper in the years to come I can look back and smile with her.  We think doing one every year would be kind of fun.  The questions are in black and Heidi's answers colour.

My name is Heidi  I am  5 years old.  I will be grown up when I am 22 years old.  I will drive when I am 18 years old and I will drive like Mum.
I will save 340 dollars for my retirement.  I think vacations should be 50 minutes long.  My family says I am 5.  I am special because God made me.
When I grow up......  
I will be just like Mummy and Daddy.
My friend will be everybody I know right now.
I will live in a house.
I will have 3 children. (she then said called Mary, Laura and baby Carrie)
I will eat all kinds of food. (potatoes, carrots, peanut butter, bread)
I will vacation in England and Scotland.
I will read stories and go on the computer like my Dad.
I will cook like my Mum.
I want to be a nurse and zookeeper when I grow up.
